Back at it

About 7 Weeks out post Achilles surgery. Got the green light to start easy spinning and being in a walking boot for about an hour or so a day for the next week. Then full time walking boot next week for another 2 weeks, with some little time in a full cushioned running shoe. After week 4, full time in full cushioned running shoe. Then PT. There is a big bump of scar tissue that has come back since the stitches came out almost a month ago. Not happy with it, and am massaging it fairly hard 3x/day. Any other hints to break this up? Deep tissue massaging soleus muscle, etc. and compression socks going on daily now too. TIA for any suggestions! Photo 1 - Aug 17th. Photo 2 - Sept 10th. Photo 3 - Oct 3rd.


Hey Bruce,
Good luck with your recovery and I hope you will get back into the saddle and enjoy your rides soon!

Sorry I have no helpful tips for you. I can only try to send you some positive thoughts from the other side of the world.

Aww, man, these pictures...

…make my legs and feet hurt only looking at it.

Thank you Pierre! At least I am easy spinning on the stationary trainer, which is helping my headspace quite a bit. Your good thoughts and wishes are appreciated and make a difference.
